Abstract

This article probes three of the findings of the author’s D.Min. project thesis, which explored God’s call of racial justice in a predominantly white, affluent Episcopal parish. The research revealed theological and missional challenges that inhibit the church from joining in God’s mission of justice, namely participants viewing the church as the host of mission, white privilege hindering the practice of listening, and the reluctance of members to articulate the presence and activity of God as it relates to justice. In consideration of these obstacles, this article calls upon the indiscriminate generosity of God for funding the imagination of the missional community for faithful innovation related to racial justice.
